Microsoft Flight Simulator coming to Xbox consoles next month
Console players can take to the skies later this summer
Microsoft and Asobo Studio have announced that Microsoft Flight Simulator will launch on Xbox Series X|S on July 27 and will be included with Xbox Game Pass.
From light planes to wide-body jets, you’ll test your piloting skills against the challenges of real-time weather, including accurate worldwide cloud cover and cloud layers, wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, rain, and lightning. With the power of satellite data and cloud-based AI, you’ll travel the entire planet with over 37,000 airports, 2 million cities, 1.5 billion buildings, real mountain ranges, roads, trees, rivers, animals, traffic, and more.
Players on Xbox Series X|S will get all the same content as PC players have enjoyed since the game launched last year, such as free World Updates (Japan, US, France, Benelux, UK, and Ireland so far and many more to come), themed DLCs, and more.
The Microsoft Flight Simulator will also get a free Top Gun: Maverick expansion in partnership with Paramount Pictures to celebrate the launch of the new “Top Gun: Maverick” movie.
Microsoft Flight Simulator released on PC last year. An Xbox One version was also initially announced, but appears to be no longer planned.
